Baruch: Cuny 6. Cass school of Business: City University UK 7. Imperial College UK 8. Warwick UK 9. HEC Paris 10. London school of Economics UK I need help in rankings these schools based on their program rating, career placement etc What are prospects after completing the program? What is the realistic salary range one should expect after completing the program? eg Berkeley lists an average salary of about $95000 and bonus $35000 for the 2009 class, prior years were modestly better.
